Here's more engaging original tunes from Odegaard's Original Banjo Suite, varying from the melodic and wistful "Beverly's Farewell" to sweet and sparkling "Bekanon," which is enhanced by some soulful cello. Gentle, restful "August Love" contrasts with the bright and spritely "Teeter Totter," which adds hand drum percussion and mandolin for variety to good effect. As is the group's style, vocals are sound only, rather than words, working with voice as if it's an additional instrument. The tone of the selections is relaxing, and this would be a pleasant accompaniment to both a summer's evening on the porch or for wintertime, curled up by the fire. So it's another tasteful sampler from these talented performers, expanding on what listeners have already been enjoying with Banjo Suite I and II.
